My child and their cousins, went to Hearts and Hands and all had a wonderful experience. So loving and caring at the center. I wasnt sure about preschools at first, but Hearts and Hands changed my mind! The atmosphere and teachers were also welcoming and helpful.

The Watsonville Cooperative Preschool located in the Linscott School is AWESOME! It is a cooperative preschool run through the Watsonville/Aptos adult ed. It is an affordable program that gives parents a chance to grow and learn just like the children. Each parent gets a chance to work in the class once a week giving a 2 to 1 prarent/child ratio which is unheard of! The classroom and beautiful outdoor area are eqiuipped to encourage learning through play. Not only do you as a parent get to interact and get to know other children but you aquire great support from other parents who are raising young families as well. Teacher Sarah Mast brings in a wealth of knowledge to the preschool for both the children and parents. If one is looking for an affordable, hands on, communtiy based program then one needs to look no further as the Watsonville Cooperative Preschool hits the jackpot on so many levels!

Hi Emily! I have had my daughter with Debbie at Little Munchkins in Watsonville since she was about 4 months old. She is fabulous and it feels like you are leaving your child with a family member who loves her and wants the best, just like you. I also highly recommend Debbie!! Good luck in your search, if you are indeed still searching.
